    What color is this Holland doe?

    Could she be maybe a lilac sable magpie? Sable magpies have a cream color to them. They're cchl based instead of cchd

    When to rebreed

    While I don't have a ton of experience yet I've been breeding all of my rabbits back at about 4 weeks as long as the doe is in good condition. I'm thinking about bumping it to 6 weeks. I just got Hollands recently and still have a few weeks until my first holland litter

    Is there a market for rabbits?

    I don't think it would be worth it if you aren't utilizing them for meat. Especially with a breed like New Zealand. You'd probably just be better off having a few as pets for yourself and not breeding

    Lionhead baby colors

    Thanks for the info! This is my first lionhead litter. I have a lionlop baby buck that is going to be my main buck for these guys once he's old enough. I don't think I would have guessed that my boy was chocolate based. His colored areas just look grey to me lol. I'll have to look closer at...

    Lionhead baby colors

    I need some help on these guys. Mom is black. I think dad is some sort of frosty? Is that correct? What would his genotype be? As for the babies I believe I see one black, one tort, and I don't know what the other 3 are. Thanks for any info! One day old 3 days old (today) Mom Dad

    Fawn? Rex

    Thanks! I definitely think the middle picture looks more "orange" than he really is. I'm hoping he'll breed on my next round of pairings. I won't be able to breed him to a confirmed dilute carrier until probably April 8th. I'm comparing his color with what I've seen in the difference of...

    Fawn? Rex

    My gut says dilute because he's "dusty" for a lack of a better term. I don't think it's just low Rufus, but I don't have enough experience to be sure. I'm hoping one of the experts here can tell 🤞🤞

    Fawn? Rex

    I'm trying to figure out the genetics for this buck. No pedigree, and so far he isn't breeding. I was told he's a fawn. Having trouble finding out what that means for his genotype because of the fawn/cream/red being different between breeds. My main question is would he be dilute? Is there...

    Do magpies have to be Agouti?

    Thank you! I'll try to get that page up on my computer. I can't read it on my phone. I'm trying to figure out the difference in phenotype between them still (if there is one since being magpie the yellow pigment is gone). I guess I'll breed my magpie buck to my chocolate (self) doe and see...

    Do magpies have to be Agouti?

    Every gene sequence I see for magpie shows agouti, but then what are they without it? If they are ata or aa? I have a tri doe that is supposed to be ata I bred her to her son who is a black magpie. His sire is listed as A_B_cchd_D_ej_ I have the doe as ataB_C_Ddeje She's produced tans and...

    Tri Otter? Rex

    Thanks! So it's possible that she is ata? I previously had only read about tris being A_ (I'm guess that's probably the norm?) I don't see any otter rabbits behind her, so I'm hoping the got that from breeding results. She has chocolate magpie behind her, so fingers crossed. Chocolate otter is...

    Tri Otter? Rex

    This is my new tri rex doe. According to what they have in her pedigree she is ataB_CcchdDdej_Enen. I don't see any indication of her being otter but i read something that if she is ejej it wouldn't show, is that correct? Is there anything I could see on her phenotype to confirm this or disprove...
